SmartSlice is a plug-in from Teton Simulation for the Cura 3D printed slicer. With SmartSlice, users can assess the components before the actual printing. It is a finite element simulation plug-in that uses material parameters and simulation technology to calculate the durability and deformation of printed parts before they are even printed. All inputs to […]
The automotive industry requirement profile for materials used in vehicle interiors is continusously becoming more stringent. These requirements can be found in the OEMs specifications and are based on the legal requirements.
Goods wagons are often in service for 30 years or even 40 years. Getting spare parts at the beginning is no problem. But what do you do if the supplier removes this component from his product range or the whole company shuts its doors? This is no problem with standard parts such as screws, seals […]
Every machine contains moving parts that cause friction during operation. In contrast to metal, components made of wear-resistant iglidur polymers do not require additional lubrication (because they contain solid lubricants) – however polymers cannot dissipate the electrostatic discharge caused by friction. In semiconductor and electrical engineering, a static discharge through components can cause permanent damage […]
igus motion plastics – tribologically optimised high-performance polymers for moving applications – are the result of decades of research and development work. Each igus material, known under the iglidur brand name (https://www.igus.eu/iglidur), is thoroughly tested in our 3,800m² test laboratory. We have a huge material selection and are constantly adding new materials developed for various […]
